FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Pleated blinds are window coverings made from a single piece of fabric that folds up accordion-style when raised. They are made of a soft fabric that has been folded into pleats, which gives them a neat and tidy appearance. Pleated blinds are often used for their sleek and modern look and come in a variety of colors and fabrics to suit any decor. They can be raised or lowered to provide privacy and light control, and are especially effective at filtering light, reducing glare and blocking UV rays from entering a room.
At Direct Fabrics, our pleated blinds are made to measure and come with a cord or wand control for ease of use. They can be custom-made to fit any window size and come in a variety of colors and patterns to suit your preferences.
To keep your pleated blinds looking clean and fresh, we recommend dusting them regularly with a soft, clean cloth or using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment. For more stubborn stains, spot clean the affected area with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or soaking the blinds in water as this can damage the fabric and affect their pleating.
It's also important to handle your pleated blinds with care when raising or lowering them to prevent any damage to the pleats or the operating mechanisms. At Direct Fabrics, we offer a 5-year warranty on all our pleated blinds to ensure your peace of mind and satisfaction.
